Public input sought for Tower Green project

June 12, 2018

Meeting set for 5 p.m. Thursday at Community Center

The Tower Green Design Committee will hold a special town hall meeting this Thursday to receive public input on the development of the voter-approved Tower Green gathering space set for construction in Downtown Bartlesville.

The meeting will be held 5-6:30 p.m. at the Bartlesville Community Center, 300 S.E. Adams Blvd.

“This is an opportunity for the public to weigh in on what they would like to see happen with the Tower Green project,” said Alan Gentges, Ward 4 councilor and chairman of the Tower Green Design Committee. “We hope everyone will come out Thursday evening and share their ideas and thoughts for the use, design and development of this important community space.”

The Tower Green Design Committee was established and appointed by the Bartlesville City Council following the March 6 General Obligation Bond Election when voters approved funding for several projects including $1.7 million for the construction of a public gathering space on Sixth Street, to be located between the Price Tower and the Bartlesville Community Center.

The committee is tasked with gathering input on how to best shape the gathering space, selecting a design plan and amenities for the project and then presenting the plan and product recommendations to the City Council for final consideration. Members include City Councilors Alan Gentges and Jim Curd, Brad Doenges, Maria Gus, Annah Fischer, Shelby Brammer and Jay Webster.

The town hall meeting will be held in the BCC’s Community Hall. All residents are invited and encouraged to attend.
